GRI/G4 Reporting: GRI G4 Certified Sustainability Reporting Workshop

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is a leading global framework for reporting corporate citizenship practice. G4, GRI’s most comprehensive and up-to-date reporting framework, provides organizing principles for companies to report on social, environmental, economic, and governance dimensions of their business, leading to more sustainable and transparent business practices. As a certified GRI training partner, we will provide you with a comprehensive foundation in the GRI / G4 reporting framework and reporting process and equip you to start your company’s first GRI report, transform your existing CSR report into the GRI / G4 format, or improve your current GRI report. Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from GRI.
